I am a palaeontologist living and working in Alice Springs, in the red centre of Australia. I moved here with my wife and three kids from Johannesburg, South Africa. I used to focus my research on dinosaurs, and it is fair to say I am still a dino nut but these days I work on fossils from the NT, be they turtles, tassie tigers or anything else. In my spare time I like to watch birds, catch beetles, lizards and snakes and generally find out as much about the species around me as I can.
I can draw a little, or.. An Anthropocene Azhdarchid Analogue
As you could well imagine, I really haven't had time to write much blog material of late. So I'm showcasing one of my drawings. Its a Southern Ground Hornbill. Seriously if you like it the original is for sale (price negotiable). The proceeds will help me and my family get to the UK next year for SVP Bristol.
